I have learned something in the last day or two.  It’s very important. 

Kroger’s generic colas suck.  Badly. 

I never drank “Diet Dr. K” until a week or so ago.  Oh yeah, I’ll buy my cola-addicted teenaged son generic, Kroger cola all the time.  He’s never complained about it.  I feel like a horrible mother.  The Sam’s/Wal Mart generic colas are good.  So are Publix’.  Kroger’s brand doesn’t hold the carbonation for 5 minutes after you open the can!

Maybe you knew this.  I did not know this and I want to apologize to the Manchild for forcing him to drink brown sugar water.  Never again, my darling Son.  Never again.
